Protests against Enbridge’s Line 9 pipeline reversal started with a bang when a group of militant anarchists (including a convicted G20 ringleader) occupied a pumping station in Westover, Ontario in 2013. The protests began to fizzle out after the first protest- first there were a series of 1-day occupations (with no arrests), and now the most recent occupation by “Six Nations” in North Dumfries.
The protesters sounded resolute at first, explaining how they planned to occupy the site, holding teach-ins and other activities. Things started getting quiet after the second day, and then all communications stopped on the third. It was a mystery, what happened to the intrepid protesters? Well, the mystery is now solved- the protest has ended with a whimper.
